    That’s cute – I wish him the best of luck. I know I am a foreigner but is it significant that Missouri is not one of the most “liberal” states when it comes to homosexuality?? Am sure that St Louis must be more on the liberal side though. Also is it significant that he was the 249th overall pick out of 256???

    Looked up Missouri on Wikipedia and was amazed at the detail of the old sodomy law repealed in 2006.

    Until 2006, Missouri law defined “deviate sexual intercourse” as “any act involving the genitals of one person and the hand, mouth, tongue, or anus of another person or a sexual act involving the penetration, however slight, of the male or female sex organ or the anus by a finger, instrument or object done for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of any person.”[2]

    Missouri criminalized having “deviate sexual intercourse with another person of the same sex” as “Sexual Misconduct in the First Degree.”[3] In 1986, the Supreme Court of Missouri upheld the constitutionality of this prohibition in State v. Walsh.[4] When the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2003 decision in Lawrence v. Texas rendered laws banning consensual sexual activity unenforceable, Missouri was one of only 4 states that criminalized only homosexual sodomy.[5]

    In 2006, Missouri removed consensual sodomy from its definition of “Sexual Misconduct in the First Degree.”

    Fascinating watching all this from over the pond just as a bearded transvestite wins the Eurovision Song Contest!

    Crazy world…..
